One of the things I sell from my web site is a set of 6 magazines dating from 1978 to 1981 or so. The ads have addresses and prices that are long out of date, but the content is truly 'evergreen' for the target audience.
The magazine is called "Steel Guitarist", and its subscribers were pedal steel guitar players. It contains interviews with famous players, tips about techniques and guitar maintenance, etc. Most of the articles are truly timeless. New players literally MUST buy this collection to get a real feel for steel guitar culture.
I'm not sure if anything on the Internet can have the kind of legs that Steel Guitarist magazine has, but the discussions on my forum come close. A searchable archive of steel guitar knowledge that includes some of the best and most famous players in the world covering a span of 6 years (and counting) should be a valuable, 'evergreen' resource. The real problem I have is removing the noise from it. I figure I'll tackle that one in my retirement. :)
